But if they just replaced whatever was there before with the Erstwhile CGI model they made for "The Outrageous Okona," then the original ship still remains unidentified.
That's the point though, they didn't just replace the model with a CG recreation of another model, they're using the original film negatives. The original episode used this same physical model.
No, in Bernd's essay about the reuses of the Batris, he states that the CGI Erstwhile was used to represent the Arcos. The planet is newly created with CGI too.
Ah, I didn't read the "essay," just the observations page. IMO that doesn't preclude the possibility that the original used the Okana ship, especially since the team working on this project has access to the original notes used during production.
